Movie Madness

It seems like all the great, creative film directors are pedophiles.  I guess kids really are inspirational.

Summer Blockbusters, Allegedly 6.14.2019

Lets take a look at this weeks releases as per Rotten Tomatoes:

The Dead Don’t Die(2019) 53%
Adam Driver and Bill Murray headline a killer cast in Jim Jarmusch’s comedy about a couple of small-town cops who find themselves in over their heads when the dead begin coming back to life and shambling about town.
Starring: Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Sevigny
Directed By: Jim Jarmusch
Ruth’s Review: This does not look promising. Then again, I’m no Bill Murray fan, I don’t get the appeal.
Men in Black International(2019)
The Men in Black are back, and this time, one of them is a woman. Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson suit up as memebers of MiB’s London bureau, who are dispatched to investigate a series of otherworldly crimes happening on Earth.
Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Rebecca Ferguson, Kumail Nanjiani
Directed By: F. Gary Gray
Ruth’s Review: No Tommy Lee Jones or Will Smith. Thank goodness we keep just piling onto already existing ideas.
Shaft(2019)
Three generations of Shaft come together as Richard Roundtree, Samuel L. Jackson, and Jessie T. Usher unite to help the youngest member of the family, JJ, discover the truth behind his best friend’s death.
Starring: Samuel L. Jackson, Jessie T. Usher, Regina Hall, Alexandra Shipp
Directed By: Tim Story
Ruth’s Review: Pretty much the same sentiment as what I stated above. Unless they have racist Christian Bale being Patrick Bateman-esque, this is a no.

Seems Pretty Practical

I have said for many years that Impractical Jokers is the funniest show on television. I was watching reruns the other day and I noticed a little image in the corner with information about tickets still being available for the Impractical Jokers cruise. I had no idea that there was such a demand for the show. I figured they do alright doing their live improv or whatever, but going on a cruise ship seems like a real commitment . I looked into this cruise, I must say, they have a decent line up of comedians, apparently the stigma of boat act is not what it once was. The pricing on it seems legit, but you would really have to be like mildly obsessed with the show to dedicate vacation time to go on this thing, you might as well just go on any cruise. To be fair, I don’t get the cruise thing anyways, but hey, these guys have a nice little racket going, let them profit while they can, God Bless em.

In my research of this cruise, I also found out they filmed a feature length movie. Okay, I get it, the Jackass boys did it and those films were pretty successful. This sounds an alarm though, like this is the peak and now comes the decline. The bigger they get, the more they are recognized which in turn means, you can’t keep pulling of the scenarios. So how does this all end?

Apparently with them hosting a game show on TBS called Misery Index. You gotta have a Plan B.

Hey good for them, capitalize while you can or in the words of The Game, “You gotta get your money right.”

What A Drag?

So this new Vince Vaughn/ Mel Gibson movie Dragged Across Concrete sounds fucking dope!

Here is the plot from Wikipedia:

Two policemen, one an old-timer (Mel Gibson), the other his volatile younger partner (Vince Vaughn), find themselves suspended when a video of their strong-arm tactics become the media’s cause du jour. Low on cash and with no other options, these two embittered soldiers descend into the criminal underworld to gain their just due, but instead find far more than they wanted awaiting them in the shadows

Of course people reviewing it say it is racist, misogynistic, yadda, yadda, yadda.

Who cares? It sounds like it is going to be awesome. Reviewers don’t like it because this shows how people actually are and not how they think people should be.

I’m loving Vince Vaughn since his DUI. I love Mel Gibson since his DUI. Not to mention his hilarious audio tapes, blow me then Jacuzzi seems rather reasonable. I know it seems blasphemous for me to like him since he may not particularly care for Jews and I’m a Heeb, but what do you want he is Australian, they don’t like Jews, but who does? I’m sorry but all should be forgiven with Apocalypto. Great flick!

Anyway, can’t wait for this movie to drop. Looks like it will be a good one!

SUMMER BLOCKBUSTERS, ALLEGEDLY 6.15.2018

Here are this week’s new releases as per Rotten Tomatoes.

Superfly(2018)
Trevor Jackson stars in this updated remake of the 1972 film, and while we don’t have an official plot synopsis yet, the original follows a cocaine dealer trying to secure one last deal before leaving the business.
Directed By: Director X.
Ruth’s Review: This actually comes out today, yuck.
Pixar’s superpowered Parr family are back in this sequel that picks up literally right where The Incredibles left off and follows Elastigirl’s return to fame, while Bob and the kids try to get used to normal life.
Directed By: Brad Bird
Ruth’s Review: Not for me, but I bet it kills at the box office.
Tag(2018)
Ed Helms, Jon Hamm, and Jeremy Renner star in this high-concept comedy — based on a true story — about a group of friends who have been engaged in an elaborate, decades-long game of tag.
Directed By: Jeff Tomsic
Ruth’s Review: I can tell that this will somehow be fouled up though an interesting premise. Too bad, because Ed Helms is a really good comedic actor.
